My students absolutely love this topic and it really produces some incredible pieces that have the potential to be rich in vocabulary. I use the s'mores scene from "The Sandlot" to introduce this assignment, and they go bonkers over how funny it is. We talk about what Ham did well and what he could have explained better. It is a hit. Enjoy this assignment with your students!
